The City of Merritt Official Community Plan outlines Council’s affirmation to remove impediments to private sector investment, revamping the City’s regime of taxes, fees, and charges to improve its competitiveness in attracting growth and encouraging development in the community. In addition, the City of Merritt is committed to increasing the density of residential development. We wish to encourage business in Merritt to expand over the next few years as economic opportunities present themselves. These expansions could result in new construction, increased employees, or simply added product lines. This new initiative will provide the City of Merritt a competitive advantage for our community in attracting development that will ensure growth that is balanced and progressive.

The City of Merritt is currently considering the development of a Revitalization Tax Exemption bylaw which would provide support to the downtown core. Further information will be published when it is available.
